WTF? There are people who actually enjoy this? I really, really hate some people.
Mali is the lone elephant at the Manila Zoo, and the only captive elephant in the Philippines. Support PETA’s campaign to retire Mali to a sanctuary where she can have room to roam, other elephants to socialize with, and the life she truly deserves!

Have you heard about Bleat? One of my readers (thanks cowgirl) turned me on to it yesterday. It’s a vegan social network that’s launching in May. I checked it out, and it looks like it’s going to great. Here’s some info from their website:
What’s so great about Bleat?
There’s a lot to discover at Bleat, such as:
- A vast comprehensive vegan resource
- Interact with vegans from all across the globe
- Advice on vegan friendly brands
- Recipes, restaurant guides & reviews
- Information on the welfare of animals
How do we sum Bleat up? Well, Bleat isn’t just a vegan social network and it’s certainly far from just a vegan directory. Simply put, it’s a whole new way to get the absolute most from your vegan lifestyle.
Okay Bleat, you’ve got me curious. I hope you live up to your hype:-)

Serious enough that she wouldn’t race again. When you are a greyhound and you can’t race, you are generally considered worthless. Shez’s Way was put to sleep.
Shez’s Way is possibly luckier than four of her litter mates that were not even named. If you are not a good…

Once again, Australia progresses over us.

NO PUPPY put up for sale in pet shops will be put down in Queensland under a new policy announced at State Parliament yesterday.
Agriculture Minister John McVeigh joined eight-week-old pups Bobby and Phil for the announcement of an agreement between the Pet Industry Association of Australia and the RSPCA.
Under the deal, micro-chipped “ethically sourced” puppies sold through Queensland’s 140 or so PIAA member pet stores will be re-homed if abandoned or returned.
It is not known how many pups are destroyed if they are unwanted after being bought from pet shops but RSPCA CEO Mark Townend said the figure could be considerable.
About 40,000 dogs a year are put down in Queensland but that includes those euthanased for medical reasons.
PIAA Chief Executive Roger Perkins said the new policy was about guaranteeing “happy pets for life”.
“What this policy will…
